Me too. Fun playoff hockey game to watch tonight.
Pasta's final goal was too sick.
Toronto was not realgud tonight.
i am rooting for boston - i've always liked their identity and players. bergeron-marchand-pastrnak is the best line in hockey for 2 years in a row now
I see them running in to cap problems though
A late 1st, 2nd round and 3rd round pick absolutely crushing the Leafs and their top 10 picks. Babcock's coaching has also seemed completely subpar so far, I expected their D and goaltending to prove themselves to be weaknesses but still expected Babcock's coaching to make for closer games. Wings never got embarrassed like this.
babcock having no greatest dman of all time, and a 19 year old datsyuk and a 20 year old zetterberg would get smoked 15-1 against these current boston bruins
lets not kid ourselves
chicago and pittsburgh lost before they won as well
Yeah, most likely. However, actually getting talented players in your system is harder than deciding what ones to keep once your up against the cap. Having too much talent is a pretty good problem to have.
Yeah, leafs weren't suppose to be a playoff team last season, and surprised everyone by making it. Would say that Babcock is part of the reason why a group of kids were turned into a playoff team as quickly as they were.
Everyone loses. Not everyone wins. We’ll see if Toronto can fight back on home ice but I see no reason right now to think they’re just gathering experience for deep runs. They have real flaws on that team.
The problem I've always seen with Babcock in Toronto is that he's going to be out of rope with those young kids by the time they'r ready to win.
Babcock's window might only be open 2 more years before those young kids get sick of his ****.
Tatar lost something in his motor. He used to be a pretty dynamic, energetic player who drove the play to the opposition's net.
His shots/60 is down almost 25 percent from it's peak in 13-14.
His Corsi/60 is down close to 30 perent from his first 3 years.
People will say Datsyuk...but Tatar was a great corsi player with or without Datsyuk, and actually more productive without him.
Not even a hint of Mrazek relieving Elliot, pretty telling of what they think about Mrazek
How do you hint relieving a goalie?
Generally the goalie starts moving around the bench, camera pans to him, announcers say something. You know, a visual clue that might hint at something.
Thougtht for sure there'd be movement from Mrazek on the bench after the fourth goal. Not a fan of Mrazek but knowing how he tends to step it up in the playoffs I'd be rolling the dice for one game with him in the crease.
Brian Elliot is a Hitchcock goalie. Like most average goalies.
They look awesome behind a good team with a good system.
But they get exposed on teams without coaching, defense and a system.
I think Mrazek publicly questioning Hakstoll was the end of Mrazek there.
I think Mrazek playing like garbage was also a big factor. They should just play that Lyon kid.
I always get a fuzzy feeling inside whenever I hear Ken Daniels doing a national broadcast. Guy is a total pro and deserves it.
Capitals gave up a 3-1 lead, CBJ is currently up 4-3 near the end of the second.
ref is hurt too, the stretcher was brought out. Hes grabbing his left knee.
bobrovsky is playing like its the regular season
jackets trying their hardest to lose the game
they've taken like 4 penalties in the final 10min of this third period , caps tied it. Now caps are on the PP for the final 2min of the 3rd.
Holy crap the Jackets are up 2-0 on the Caps, both road wins too
I have no idea what to do with the Capitals if they lose this series. Move Kuznetsov? Wilson? Do you even consider trading Ovechkin at that point?
Trade for Erik Karlsson, obviously.
Rooting for Jets but Preds will proably win it. Won't mind either.
